Turmeric - Too Good to be True?

news you may not know

Turmeric - Good For What Ails You...

It wasn't too terribly long ago that turmeric was a seldom heard of spice, or root, or poorly defined ingredient found mainly in Indian foods. Or, at least that was the case for the prototypical Westerner who believed most foods originated in a McDonalds' factory (for dining out) or a Papa John's (for dining in, via delivery) or, in those most rare instances when the food was actually prepared at home, from any number of pre-packaged fast food microwavable manufacturers.

...Turmeric was nowhere to be found.

But, that may be changing.

New claims continue to tout the power of turmeric's active ingredient, curcumin - to ease pain, fight cancer, improve liver function, reduce inflammation and, of course, added a zesty touch to real cooked-at-home foods that is scrumptious.

So, what are you waiting for? Check out the links below to learn more about this wonder spice. And, while you're at it, take the break you deserve and boycott fast food joints for a while. You'll be amazed at the difference it makes.
